    Added to StumbleUpon – thumbs up! I LOVE THIS. And really relate to it, both the topic at hand (natural healing) and the broader issue.

    P.S. That colonic sounds A-mazing.

    “Nursing was a mandate; co-sleeping, logic; consistent love and care, our doctrine.” Love It!!! This speaks to the women I choose to have in my life, thank you.

    Oh my goodness I am so with you…it is most definitely a process! Glad to know I’m not alone in this boat, but inspired to do better as well. 🙂 Thanks for this!

    I struggle with this, also. I rarely give pain medication, I favor dirt over bandaids, and use humidifiers and time to ease almost everything my children encounter. But for me, I sneak extra sweets, I “don’t have time” to make healing homemade stuff, and though I usually take a nap over an ibuprofen, I do still take pills every now and then. But let’s give ourselves grace – I grew up taking dimetapp and antibiotics (now I’m allergic to all penicilins). So it’s definitely a process!

      Wow, Jess — I’m also allergic to penicillin and I also grew up in an anti-biotic happy home. A happy home, too. But you know what I mean…an Rx for everything.

    Were you peeking in my window last week when I snuck into the back of the “medicine” cabinet and grabbed one of the last, way-expired motrins for a headache that just wouldn’t go away?! It’s SO much easier to tell everyone else to skip the meds and go holistic, but when you have a family to care for, it’s easy to take the “easy” way out and go for a quick fix! I’m hoping this mentality is from growing up with the “a pill can fix anything” attitude and our children will be better at refusing this junk than we are!

    This article is so spot-on, I can’t even tell you. I feel this way so much (inconsistent, sometimes even hypocritical) that I even have a whole blog devoted to it. LOL. My problem is trusting and relying on my holistic knowledge vs. heeding the advice of our pediatrician simply because I want to be doing SOMEthing. Usually I fall for the latter, buying whatever crazy prescription they give me, and then doing my darndest to research holistic methods for taking my baby off of said prescription. Wonderful article!
